) and being naturally predisposed to maturity, I feel much older.
Even in an age when the feminists apparently control everything, it seems that the practice of older (usually male) scholars sleeping with much younger (usually female) graduate students is alive and …
well, I wouldn’t say “well.” With two such relationships making recent news in the discipline of philosophy alone, for some of the older generation of professors (again, mostly male), the grad students are still a dating pool—and vice versa.
This is not just icky—it is highly damaging to the profession.
Because not only are these relationships almost always an unacceptable abuse of power, they also affect the dynamics of departments, entire fields, and the very act of academic mentorship altogether.
So why does it still happen (other than the fact that people enjoy having sex)?
I understand some businesses have fraternization policies, but lets assume that this college doesnt have one. (assuming they are dating a traditional student)Does the gender of the employee/student matter?
